Fine wines by the glass

An added bonus is that the pub can offer a selection of these fine wines by the glass with thanks to the Coravin system. The Coravin Wine System is a system that enables you to have either red, white or rosé by the glass, enabling you to have different wines with every dish you are served. You can even pre-taste a vintage port then maybe serve it a week later at a celebration. This system enables you to pour that exclusive Merlot per glass without losing any of the flavour. The system enables you to try the wine to see if it is the has aged enough. If it hasn’t, you simply leave the bottle to age a little longer. This system has been enhanced with a hollow needle that penetrates the cork and the foil.  The wine is poured via the needle. The space created within the bottle, by the same needle, is filled with argon gas. As a result, oxidation will not occur, and the wine won’t become acidic. A fantastic system enabling you to enjoy these fine wines a glass at a time.
